I travelled on my own to Mexico City, and although I am an avid traveller, the last advice from friends who knew I was off to Mexico was always 'Oh...do take care'. Yes, that did leave me feeling I would have to travel with all antennae blazing! The lovely warm welcome I recieved at the Red Tree House however, and the reasurrance from Victor at the reception desk that it was safe to walk to the historic centre on my own, and use the Metro and other forms of transport, enabled me to relax and totally enjoy all those fabulous treats that Mexico City offers.
Standards at the Red Tree House are really high. The rooms have obviously been designed by someone who is a traveller - good showers - pristine sheets and oh so comfortable beds - furnishings and art work you'd like in your own home - easy to use safe boxes -a generous supply of drinking water.....For me there was nothing missing. The breakfasts too were a lovely introduction to some delicious Mexican dishes, while providing also plenty of top quality fresh fruit, juices, pastries, bread, tea and good coffee which we all take for granted. The cherry on the top however were the other guests there. Yes other tourists and business travellers around the friendly breakfast table, or in the evening when Craig, one of the generous owners, shared a bottle of wine with whoever gathered by the fire place to mull on the day's activities. This generocity of spirit is what the Red Tree House is all about, and inevitably it rubs off on all the guests, allowing a group of fellow travellers become friends. What pleasant evenings are spent as a consequence in one of the many excellent recommended restaurants nearby. Surely this is is how travel should always be?
